Dear ‘’writers’’:

If you think that the world is comprised mainly of Anglo-Saxon women, if you think that you are forced to include Malala and Maya Angelou in a poor effort to appear ''diverse'' while diminishing their offer in our world, if you think that the wife of a ‘’President’’ who caused bloodshed in a European capital in 1999 to cover up his own dirty spots, created by his secretary's unsteady hands (or any other part of her anatomy, I don't know...) should be included in this book next t

While I was familiar with some of them, what makes this book a must read is not just the knowledge you glean about their lives; it is the two questions at the end of each vignette that inspires reflection and, hopefully, action.

I received an ARC copy of this book from Edelweiss

As with "She Changed the World" - published last year by TIME - I feel like the use of the word 'world' in the title is a bit misleading for a book that focuses almost exclusively on American women, but if you take it as a representation of a very small slice of women then it's an enjoyable read. It's definitely a bit short, but I liked the women they included and that they added a list of some other women that the reader could look up on their w

I received this book through Edelweiss Plus in exchange for an honest review

This one is a super quick read with vibrant illustrations on 14 women that raised their voice and make changes for their environment and the world. The length of each features and the language used really fits their target audience and the women featured here are pretty diverse as some of them are disabled, non-white, lesbian, and autistic.
However, I do feel like it's pretty US-centered, maybe because it is the target a

“No matter who you are, you have the right to speak up. The world needs your voice,” the introduction states in Kathy Macmillan and Manuela’s children’s book, She Spoke: 14 Women Who Raised Their Voices and Changed the World.

~ What ~
This thirty-two-page hardbound with a built-in battery-operated recorded speaker targets children ages six to eight years old who are interested in women who made a difference in history by speaking out. With no scary scenes, the colorful portraits and illustrations

I sincerely believe we need more books that teach us about people who inspire us, so we can be motivated to better ourselves each and every day, in each and every way. She Spoke is one such book. Here are my thoughts on this book.
Pros:
This book introduces us to women who are famous, like Hillary Clinton, Dr.Jane Goodall, and Maya Angelou, it also brings to light other lesser-famous women who deserve the spotlight as well, like Dolores Huerta, Leymah Gbowee, and Dr. Temple Grandin.

I have been reading this book to my 3yo daughter almost every night. Hearing this diverse group of women in their own voices is incredible. My daughter loves to press the buttons that match the pictures on each page and I don't mind listening to "women's rights are human rights and human rights are women's rights" multiple times a day.

I love this picture book that features 14 female changemakers and includes soundbites for each one. Includes a short biography and details about the words they spoke. My favorite part is probably the section where they ask the readers questions relating to that person and their life.
